Default Found an SSEi, but need help deciding.

I found this SSEi locally

1998 Purple SSEi

my problem is this - it'* purple.

It'* in great shape. I just dont know if I'd sport a purple car. Opinions?

(I hope this is in the right section)

I also found a black 98 ssei w/ 60k miles but they're asking $8500...too much?

That'* not the worst color I've ever seen, but those wheels ain't stock for that year.

And I'd say $85,00 for a 98 is a bit much.

That car is pretty sharp. Highlander has a purple bonneville (I think 98 too!) and I thought his ride was good looking.

$8500?

It'* listed at $5,995. That'* a good price for that year and miles. That purple looks good with tinted windows.

Nothing wrong with that color. It stands out and is (er uh) the color my 97 was thought to be.

6 is a reasonable number for that.

Do it...Do it

Bad news =(...Called the dealer and he said that he literally took a deposit on it 10 minutes before I called. He said he'd give me a call if the deal falls through. Back to the search.....

(this is on the purple one)
